#462 Rickey Clark

One season wonder in rookie year of 1967....12-11 W-L 2.49 ERA good for 6th in AL....future looked bright....career start mirrored that of fellow teammate Clyde Wright’s but without Skeeter’s comeback....Sophomore year was a huge sophomore slump going 1-11....1968 ERA as raised to 3.59 was not a disaster, but it was a bad year for offensive support. in the league...had trouble making inroads with minor league assignments to return to big club........pitched well enough in AAA SLC to return to Angels for second half of 1971....his 2.86 ERA was buoyed by his 3rd game; a shutout of the A’s follow by a handful of strong starts......last year in bigs was 1972 where he did some spot starting and occasional bullpen work....tried out for Phillies in 1973....had no baseball card until 1970 when pitched only 9 inning for Angels in 1969....did not pitch for the big in 1970....strange
